in missouri. st. louis and kansas city in the west were based democrats in alabama between. i'm sorry mike. >> it's not a surprise but just to reference the other marquee senate race here in virginia tim kaine the former governor looks very strong. that is a real problem for mitt romney. he needed a stronger george allen. at the moment came look strong and that's a real worry. >> let's assume what you more or less say is likely to happen in the house will stay republican in the senate might stay democratic. do you expect in any leadership changes in either the senate or the house and republicans or democrats? anybody likely to be challenged or do you think will see no change? >> i think no change. the only way i think the house can see change is if republicans and i really really really don't think this will happen, if republicans lost more than 15 seats in the house. i think boehner could have a problem but i think it's owing to be more single digits so i don't think we will have a problem at all. >> whoever's the present of the united states will have to do deal with the lame-duck sessio
in that way? >> well, july 20th was a very sad day for our country and certainly for our city, and the metropolitan area. aurora will never be the same after that mass killing, and i've had a chance to meet with the families of some of the -- some of those who were killed. i've met with others who have been wounded. i met with the medical teams and law enforcement. for me this is very personal issue, and so on one side of the district you have columbine, where you had a terrible tragedy 13 or so years ago, and then a couple months ago, three months ago in aurora. so, for me, the subject of crowd control, public health, coming from these mass shootings, is something that we just have to deal with, and the most common-sense approaches that can be taken to avoid some of these mass killings, and -- >> banning assault weapons? >> well, you look at the old assault weapons act that expired a couple years ago. that needs to be reviewed. two, that i'm part of now, one is to require -- so right now if you want to buy a firearm, you have to buy it from a licensed firearm dealer, face-to-
was not recorded here without much attention. a missile was shot from the gaza strip to one of our cities in the south of israel and it had a children's kindergarten, but thankfully it was that night and there were no children there. i mention this because i dismiss so then sent in the day and hunt this missile hit a kindergarten for children and, the number of fatalities have probably been very high and this would've led in my opinion to an immediate change in the situation, not only to israel and the gaza strip, but also the entire region. it would've been a changer, not a money changer, a regional changer. i'm saying this because where there's been in the middle east where are they can have enormous effects on a whole range of issues. and it is often in the hands of individuals to bring this about. this is the situation we are in. i will say, by the way, in this respect but the fact that israel now has one means at its disposal, a system developed over the years in which we are able at times to detect the missiles before they reach the destination and to vote them up. this has also bee
good debate performance city take a potential weakness internet to a strength. it's also very telling moment when they were debating the bf, where the president is clearly vulnerable. the story they've told has changed since the beginning they sent out mixed messages about what happened and when they knew precisely what happened. yet he is not only to talk but i'm the commander-in-chief. no, the buck stops here. it's not hillary clinton who will take responsibility. i take responsibility not the one who greets those caskets. and he looked very presidential at that moment, whereas mitt romney missed an opportunity to be able to really get at whether or not the white house has been forthcoming. >> the one piece of hard news out of this debate is that it's clear that the white house come at the obama campaign is trying to de-legitimate ties criticism of libya. you're the present one of those moments say that he found from these criticisms offensives. the e-mail from the obama campaign says that in his command of the facts about libya, they said governor romney had a jeweled fold moment,
city, illinois. hi, tom. >> caller: hi, this is to both gentlemen. i watch the republicans and i'm a democrat, but i voted bush one time the first time. so my question is this mr. romney. i understand the president obama is. he's not letting anyone drag us into wars are subtle conflicts, but easily do hope. like libya and other places. he turned it over to the u.n. and the last four americans in libya. but it's liberated. my question with mr. romney is, is he talking about actually going back in iraq? going into syria? getting ready to go to war with iran in the sense of, is he ready to put boots on the ground? is that what you must do different than the president? and if not, what does he want to do besides rattle a saber? i'll take your comments off the air. >> guest: i think it's a fantastic question because romney scamp would like certain people in the neoconservative elements of the republican party to believe that in fact he is ready to pull the trigger and the preemptive strike on iran. the problem is you look at what he actually said any talk to senior advisers, whether d
